    *Official* Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh ODI Series 2019

    One day series staring Friday should be high quality cricket from both teams.

    Sri Lanka and their odd retirements

    https://www.sport24.co.za/Cricket/Cr...match-20190722

    It would be ace if he retired after the second drinks break or something

    Allows the home fans to say goodbye I suppose

    On reflection he did an amazing job in the WC, coming back after a couple of years of neglect from SL management and saving us from embarrassment (helping us be quite competitive itbt) as his final contribution, setting us up to try and rebuild our LO reputation which was in absolute tatters coming into the WC

    This retirement with immediate effect on the other hand

    Here is a bowler who basically couldn't keep up with the changing dynamic of the ODI format, his decline leading up to the 2015 WC was one of many reasons SL weren't very successful there. Although his peak from 2009-2013 was very decent and his batting was really exciting to watch at times, fond memories

    Haha wow I had no idea he hadn't already retired.

    I love how even though he hasn't played even played a domestic game in 18 months he only retired from international cricket.

    So turns out Malinga actually valued the bond he formed with Kula over the years and wanted to honour it by having a send off game for the two of them, but SLC weren't keen on the idea, so Kula just announced his retirement, I doubt he'll play cricket again competitively at either FC or List A level either.

    really hard to care about this tour atm, especially with the Ireland/England game happening alongside it.

    Cricbuzz and Cricinfo disagree on the squad picked by BD too which is pretty funny.

    Don't see the point in picking Farhad Reza. He's 33. He won't be there for the next WC. Same for 29 year old fringe seamer Shafiul Islam (assuming Cricbuzz is correct that he's in the squad).

    This should have been used as away to blood the next generation. I get keeping some of the senior pros around for guidance, but are those two + Rubel going to be playing in 2023?

    Taijul will be 33 by then too, but he's a quality spinner and could be leading the attack by then so fair enough.

    So, this has started. SL 23/1 after 4.5 overs.

    I was genuinely shocked to see how much of a cliff fall Kulasekera's decline had been when I looked up the stats. Was a wonderful bowler in the early 00s. Great partnership with Malinga. Was disappointing how he faded away but an accurate swing bowler from SL ought to be celebrated.
